Harriet Smith
Gramophone, December 2016

Park’s Petrushka is less trenchantly headstrong (less overtly ‘Russian’) than in many readings but it really dances; lines tend to be lithe rather than jagged and all three movements are vividly rendered. Chords are weighted with great sensitivity too. Had I heard Olga Neuwirth’s Marsyas ‘blind’, so to speak, I’d have guessed the composer to be Messiaen, which I mean as a compliment. It’s a piece of great power and impact, qualities fully realised in Park’s imaginative reading, which combines huge conviction and a wide colour palette. Definitely one to watch. © 2016 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

Remy Franck
Pizzicato, September 2016

Besides a well thought and beautifully shaped Schumann Fantasy, an appealing version of Olga Neuwirth’s Marsyas, we hear on this disc a marvellous and very special version of the Three Petrouchka Movements, played with finesse and an astonishingly light touch. © 2016 Pizzicato
